Intel set to release low-voltage resilient memories

Intel is set to release details of its plans to build what it calls low-voltage resilient memory.

At the 2010 Symposium on VLSI Circuits in Hawaii, Intel will claim that the technology will help enable ultra low-power circuits in processor designs. It will fix one of the problems involving registers which are tricky run at low voltages. This limits the factor for minimum operating supply voltage of a microprocessor core.

To lower the power, Intel proposes to use low-voltage resilient memories, which are ''circuits that are tolerant to variations and leakage noises.'' According to an Intel press release, its technology can be scaled from 1-Volt to 340-mV, depending on the requirements. It is also said to have an energy-efficiency of 550 billion operations per Watt.
